QuranBrowswer.com is a good resource to 'verify' the sentences of the anti-religious document named the Koran or Qu'ran. Mohammed's Mein Kampf is a long repetitive rant that dulls the reader into weary oblivion, and a deep depressive trance. No higher guiding principles animate the gibberish cobbled together in a disorganized fashion over 400 years. [Sorry Muslims, the moon deity Al-Lah probably does not converse in Arabic and would be a poor candidate to pen such a sorry document, it was Mohammed and his not-so merry men who are to blame]. Chapter 82 has no real purpose at all. It says nothing new. It adds nothing to our collective moral, metaphysical or existential intelligence. The main Koranic themes are depressingly prevalent. Submit, prostrate, punish the Infidel, and obey Mohammed [or Allah since both are the same].
“O man! What has seduced you from your Lord Most Beneficent? Him Who created you. Fashioned you in due proportion, and gave you a just bias; In whatever form he wills, He puts you together. Nay! But you do reject Right and Judgment!” [82:6-9]
The El-Lah, or Al-Lah moon deity is the only 'thing' or dialectical force which commands and uses 'will'. The human has no free will. Muslims are liars when they say that the Koran protects human free-will. It demands the opposite of course. The Allah thing determines all, and manages every single action in the universe, including your Judgment day. All Infidels and non-Muslims will be punished, because the Al-Lah deity has denied you the 'wisdom' to embrace Islam and has instead prepared a 'grievous penalty':
“And what will explain to you what the Day of Judgement is? Again what will explain to you what the Day of Judgement is? (It will be) the Day when no soul shall have power (to do) anything for another: for the Command, that Day, will be (wholly) with Allah.” [82:16-19]
Those clever Koranic writers. Such poetry. They have to keep repeating themselves until the listening Bedouin takes a rock and smashes in his pagan head to escape the sheer stupidity of the Koran. The Allah thing will of course be reigning supreme on 'Judgement Day', a day that will not be kind to the Infidels. Gee I wonder what this implied threat means. Will El-Lah in grand Muslim tolerance and supine satisfaction grant the non-Muslims wine, women, song and water on Judgement Day? Or is something else in store for those who are not a part of the cult:
“And the wicked – they will be in the Hell, Which they will enter on the Day of Judgment, And they will not be able to keep away therefrom.” [82:14-15]
Wicked in the Muslim tradition is anyone who has rejected the Allah and his cult. That is the definition of wicked. Anyone who does not follow the Koran or Sharia is wicked. Anyone who is not a devotee of Mohammed is wicked. Anyone who is not prostrated giving up their human free-will to the rituals of Mohammed's dictums and theologies is wicked. 'Wicked' in the Koran and in Islam, has nothing to do with Western ideas of that word. In over 200 verses of the Koran, the 'wicked' are identified for punishment and the Koran specifically targets Jews and Christians for destruction, though of course 'wicked' includes any infidel be they Buddhist, Hindu, Black Animist, Secular, Pagan or Atheist. It matters not. Within Muslim theology all non-Muslims are wicked. Period. There is no disputing that.
What then is NOT evil in Islam? It is of course following Mohammed and having Allah 'accept you'. But the Al-Lah thing will only condescend to accept you if you give your will to the Al-Lah and engage in one of the following:
suffer a death in a Holy war against Infidels
recite the whole Qur'an
eat a part of a believers body
The word 'salvation', which is 'najat' in Arabic, only appears once in the Qur'an in Sura 40:41 [by a subject of Pharaoh Ramses II who in Islamic tradition is of course a Muslim though he existed only 1900 years before Mohammed started Islam....]. Salvation in Christianity means the renouncement of sin, the redemption of our weaknesses and foibles and the reward for a life lived in harmony with the Ten Commandments which do not exist in the Koran [for example you can kill non-Muslims in the Koran, but you cannot kill a Muslim]. Salvation in Islam is according to Yusuf Ali the word 'fauz' and is expressed most clearly in Sura 5:
"Allah will say: 'This is a day on which the truthful will profit from their truth. Theirs are the Gardens, with rivers flowing beneath, - their eternal home: Allah well-pleased with them, and they with Allah. That is the great salvation (the fulfillment of all desires)." [Surah 5:119]
Ali footnotes the meaning of Fauz, It references the attainment of your desires, not of completing an ethical program:
"Fauz = felicity, happiness, achievement, salvation, the attainment or fulfilment of desires. What a beautiful definition of salvation or the end of life! - that we should win God's good pleasure and that we should reach the stage at which His good pleasure is all-in-all to us".
Thus the 'Wicked' will not receive 'Fauz' or the satisfaction of their desires and egos including water, wine, women, young boys and ever-lasting tranquillity. You get these satiated if Allah likes you, he is after all the only possessor of will in the universe. The wicked simply go to Hell including most women who comprise 99% of Hell's inhabitants according to Mohammed and Blacks, who in the Muslim tradition [see Mishkat III p. 137]; and in Mohammed's theology are simply inferior [Kufar was a word which originally described Black slaves].
This Sura just reinforces what is obvious to any who have suffered through the Koran to reach this point of the book. To be a pious Muslim you must give up your free-will to Allah and his chief axe-wielding, murdering, warring, raving, racist-supremacist Mohammed. The mentally unbalanced and challenged Mohammed is the last person any 'God' would choose to lead the cult. But there we have it. Mohammed pace Sura 38 and other chapters, is the perfect human. Sura 82 makes it clear that if you don't follow him and his Allah-thing than you are 'wicked' and you will go to Hell. Nice theology.
